What is a Blepharoplasty?
Eyelid surgery, or blepharoplasty, is a surgery performed to correct excess skin and fat pads of the upper and lower eyelids, which can cause discomfort such as reduced visual field and a tiredness and aging appearance. Redundant skin removal and fat pads repositioning on the eyelids provide a fresher and more youthful look.
Blepharoplasty may be upper and / or lower, depending on the patient's particular objectives and needs. The approaches used to perform this procedure result in virtually imperceptible scars with a high degree of aesthetic satisfaction.
